Detroit 2010: Three Special Edition Jeep Models to Bow at North American Auto Show


For a company that isn't holding a press conference at the Detroit Auto Show, Chrysler sure has a lot of new products to display. Along with a display of Fiats and a rebadged Lancia, Chrysler's Jeep brand will showcase three new special edition models: the Jeep Liberty Renegade, Jeep Wrangler Mountain Edition and Jeep Wrangler Islander Edition.

The Islander Edition returns to the Jeep lineup after 20 years and is based on the Wrangler Sport model. It comes in one of four colors: Surf Blue Pearl, Stone White, Bright Sliver Metallic and Brilliant Black Crystal.

Highlights include a "Tiki Bob" decal on the hood, along with latitude and longitude coordinates, black side stes and 17-inch wheels with 32-inch tires. Inside Islander Edition models get dark gray seats with surf blue inserts, blue stitching and Tiki Bob logos embroidered on the seats. Also included is blue stitching on the steering wheel and Mopar floor mats.

As for the Mounted Edition, it's based on the Wrangler Sport S package and comes with "Mountain" decaling as well as latitude and longitude coordinates. It's available in Rescue Green Metallic, Brilliant Black Crystal Pearl and Deep Water Blue Pearl, with high-gloss Mineral Gray 17-inch Moab wheels, as well as high gloss paint for the bumper and grille. Also included are side steps and 32-inch tires, plus special seat inserts on the inside with the "Mountain" logo.

The Island Edition package retails for $1,120, and the Mountain Edition goes for $1,820. Both option packs are available on the two-door Jeep Wrangler and four-door Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 44 models.

Along with these two Wrangler trim levels, Jeep will also display a Liberty Renegade trim level. Positioned between the Sport and Limited models, the Renegade is offered in Natural Green Pearl, Deep Water Blue Pearl, Bright Silver Metallic, Brilliant Black Crystal Pearl, Stone White and in a Renegade-exclusive Salsa Red Pearl.

Highlights include Mineral Gray 16-inch wheels with all-terrain 235/70/16 tires, hood graphics, fog lamps, skid plated, tow hooks, a silver-painted roof rack, as well as dark metallic painted fender flares, side sills, front and rear fascias and side moldings.

Inside are new cloth seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, drifwood accented bezels and a leather wrapped center console.

A 210-hp 3.7-liter V6 comes standard with Selec-Trac II active four-wheel-drive and will be available stating the first quarter of 2010.

That would be why they are not showing one at the show!

The Liberty Renegade looks ok, but the fender flares overwhelm the stock tires so they look small, at least in the photo. Might have to see it in person, but I think they could've made it cater more to the light off road crowd with a 2" lift and larger tires. That would set it apart from the other as well as maybe increase market appeal to the non-soccer crowd.

2006 XK Sport, 4.7l, QTII- many mods

No Island Edition in Malibu Yellow? I do like that they stuck with the dull gray interior scheme. I would have liked to see the Libby Renegade come with the roof mounted light bar. That really set the old KJ's apart from the rest.
